In The Footsteps Of A Bipolar Life

Life Writing

by Abigail George, Ambrose Cato George

This book will display and demonstrate the imaginative and creative powers of the pen in combating the frailties and difficulties of a life faced head on with mental illness. We all suffer from mood swing. It is just how we deal, handle and cope with the preconceived notion, the ego and self-concept of the individual with regards to the conditioning and genetic predispositions we were raised with. The authors have both faced and overcome adverse childhood experience and have risen to the challenge of being global change makers and influencers. These authors' voices keep the message of hope alive and that for triumph to prevail adversity must always be overcome.
